E-Book in the stores

wired has a small Story about the first E-Book to make it into stores. This is what many see as the future of books, and libraries.

Author Carol Givner\'s book, Bing, Bang, Boom,published by Book-On-Disc is the first e-book to make the crossover to the bookshelves of the major chains.

Eight Barnes & Noble superstores are now
stocking the novel­-on-a-disk, which is showing up on the new-releases table right alongside John Grisham\'s latest hardcover.
\"There\'s no e-book section in any of these stores yet,\" said Givner, \"but that\'s just a matter of time.\" In readings, Givner attracts crowds of 50 or more who heard about her erotic thrillers through Internet buzz. This e-book first brings the fledging
industry one step closer to the prediction
of Jack Ramanos, president and chief
operating officer of Simon & Schuster:
\"Soon we\'ll be viewing e-books as just
another form, like audio books and
paperbacks.\"
